This volume contains material on various important aspects of particle physics. Theoretical subjects include a formulation of gauge theories and the standard model, issues in quantum chromodynamics, and hard di ffraction. CP violation and quark mixing, rare and exotic decays, and quantitative tests of the standard model are represented from a phenom enological view point. Silicon detectors, methods in calorimetry, late st developments in accelerator science, and the challenges of the LHC at CERN are treated from an experimenter's perspective. Papers on neut rino physics and particle physics in the early universe complete the p anoramic sweep of the field. Problems are included to test the reader' s understanding of the subject matter.
